Why I Walk
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year. In 2016, I was one of those women. I was 34 and in the prime of my life. Ovarian Cancer changed my focus and quality of life. I was lucky, I found the cancer early, but many women are not as fortunate. Often this silent killer is caught too late and survival rates haven't improved in 50 years, we need to change that statistic.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
This year’s goal is to raise $2.1 million. Every dollar I raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support, increase awareness, and fund vital research so that we can change the future for the women we love.
Please provide your support by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join me. Together we can make a difference.
